1. The KillerFrogs

TCU Golf 2019-2020

  1. TCU men finish where they began in Hawaii, in 9th place. Not a bad finish--Frogs were projected to be 12th, and they beat 5 of the 6 Pac 12 teams. But they also finished 18-27 shots back of the other three Big 12 teams (Texas finished 2nd, OK St. 4th, Tech 7th).

    Individually, Mateo Fernandez de Oliveira continued his good play, finishing T18 at -7. The other Frogs all finished between even par and +4.

    The TCU women kicked off their spring slate today at the Greg Norman-designed River Course at the Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf and Beach Resort. TCU projects as the 7th-best team in the 15-team field, but they stand T13 after the first round, posting three scores of 79+ and nothing under 75. This course gave the Frogs fits two years ago--it yields a lot of birdies, but also a lot of big numbers, and the Frogs had quite a few today.
     
  2. Horses for courses- sounds like the ladies need to find a different tournament next year
     
  3. From a performance standpoint, probably so. But the event plays into Coach Larkin's look-at-this-schedule approach to recruiting. And with a native Puerto Rican on the team, it's unlikely to be dropped in the next two years. Valeria Pacheco is a former PR Amateur national champ, but she will need a couple of low rounds to replicate her top-20 finish from last year.

    Crazy if true, but Sabrina Iqbal's scorecard today shows not one but two albatrosses. I'm guessing you can count the number of times that has ever happened in golf at any level on one hand. The odds of making a single albatross has been cited at between a million to one and 6 million to one.

    Edit: This site indicates only one recorded instance of the feat (see #16).

    Edit2: Turns out not to have been true. Scorecard has been corrected--Sabrina had a much less dramatic round of even par, with four birdies offsetting four bogeys. Her scores were initially entered one hole off, so her pair of twos on the par-3 7th and par-3 10th were recorded as having occurred on the par-5 8th and par-5 11th.
     
  5. while i can't completely relate to going 2 over, 3 under, and 1 over on three consecutive holes i can very much relate to that 3 hole roller coaster of 1 step forward and 3 steps backward so to speak
     
  6. TCU women post the third-best round of the day in Puerto Rico and move up to 11th. They clearly got the memo about avoiding big scores--only one hole higher than bogey today. But no one went low, and the Frogs don't have any individuals in the top 20.
     
  7. TCU women lose the script on day 3 in Puerto Rico, posting 7 double-bogeys, 3 triples, and 1 quintuple on their way to a +18 round and a T12 finish. About the best you can say this week is that, in comparison to the men's basketball team, they only lost to Tech by 37.
